since the 71.03 thread has gone to bs now and just contains rants about pure video this n that and dvd blah blah, how about a bit of speculation? whats the chance of a nice shiny xmas driver? I actually thought there might be a driver coming alongside the hl2 demo but since that came on the ati site it kinda fizzled away into random thought....its getting dangerously close to christmas eve and the big day looms!! (rudolf) question is will we be toastin over a new driver set or thrown a lump of coal?

I want to get a ati card but I have no money at the moment so nvidia it is for now, just wish they'd release a driver thats not all buggered to hell.

Id like to know why I get BSOD's with every driver above 61.77... but the BSOD's are for portcls.sys which is an audio file!!!! >:o Oh well.... I can live with the BSOD's for a little while longer as the modded 67.02's have given me a huge performance boost.

No... they are not sharing IRQ's. One is on 18 .. the other on 16.

They won't release a new driver right before christmas. If they do, and there's a problem with ot, they'll have to interrupt their break.

you make it sound like the current drivers are problem free and they are actively working on (and have been) putting out fixes since the last release. sigh.

I mean a showstopper BSOD on boot bug. That happened to via once with their hyperions. They won't want to take a risk like that during their vacation.

I mean a newer official beta like 67.XX or 68.XX? who knows.

I will take a wild guess that there will be no Xmas release.

The 71.24's will probably be leaked soon, I hope. Call 'em New Year's driver release ;)

71.20 were good for battlefront but for some reason my dvd setup is cursed and 71.20 kept freezing wmp10 & nstant and making pdvd6 playback jerky.
